Carracci is very impressive in a number of ways. Temperament, presence, rideability, his sport career, and his offspring's results. I have two foals coming in the spring by him and I have not been this excited about a foaling season in some time.
Samotis, Carracci was presented and approved in Europe by the Holsteiner Verband. He was 70-day tested in Germany so while approved sBs over here, you should be able to take his offspring to most registries in the US. I'm taking both of my foals to sBs as it's easy and very cost effective.

Reason: additional info for Samotis
I think he has a very good gallop, given what I've seen while photographing him (keeping in mind it isn't something he is encouraged to do with his old ankle injury!). I have photos somewhere in the States - I will find them when I get home.
